Back to the Bridge
Thursday November 23, 2017. All Media
The JSR King of the River starts to take shape with Round 3 of the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series this Saturday night at Murray Bridge Speedway with another solid field of 25 cars. 17 travelling All Star regulars are set to challenge the locals and see who can take out the honours.

USA’s Cory Eliason is making a surprise early appearance to the Series driving for Adam Currie Team 59 Motorsport. Eliason’s last visit saw him pick up a neat $10,000 at the All Star Challenge last January at Simpson Speedway. Landing in Australia only on Wednesday the team will set about fine tuning the car and mounting a Maxwill 360 power plant for the weekend.

Many of the All Stars will have to cross the border for the 8 hour drive from Victoria whilst others are lucky enough to have a short trip to the Bridge after putting in the miles over the past few weeks. Current Series Champ Chris Solomon also currently leads the points going into this weekend closely followed by his older brother Paul Solomon in the Hutchins Motorsport ART.

Paul was the one to beat at Heartland Raceway last weekend and will want to back it up. Mark Caruso has run each round of the series this season and the number of laps he has done around the Bridge he would have to feel comfortable with a home track advantage. Farmer Phil Lock in the V4 Cool won the same round last year and would dearly love to repeat it. Renmark’s Dan Evans has been fast and always one to watch.

The number 16’s have been battling it out between each other and putting on some exciting racing against each other with V16 James Wren and SA16 Jack Gartner both ready to repeat it again. Cody Atkins, Jarman Dalitz, Michael Tancredi, Brenten Farrer , Father and Son duo Corey and Colin Lincoln all series regulars all keen to lock in good results. South Aussie hard chargers Michael Lovegrove, Brendan Guerin and Jamie Hendry all have experience and perform well on their home track.

“3 States in 4 weekends shows that we have been clocking up the k’s and we are all excited about running back at Murray Bridge. The Bridge has always been a big supporter of 360’s and our Series and it’s a pleasure to go back there” Searle tell us.

Leading the JSR King of the River Mini Series is Chris Solomon, Dan Evans 2nd, Mark Caruso 3rd, James Wren 4th and Phil Lock in 5th.

Solomon tames wild Heartland
Sunday November 19, 2017. All Media
‘Cyclone’ Paul Solomon picked up top points at the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series last night at Heartland Raceway. Showing speed from the start Solomon led the main from flag to flag in a comfortable win. The V7 was followed home by Rusty Hickman’s V40 J&J and Chris Solomon’s family owned FMG V83. 410 regular Eddie Lumbar slotted his 360 in for the Moama event and after a great drive was rewarded with a 4th place finish.

Young hard charger Dan Evans SA77 rounded out the top 5.
In what turned out to unfortunately be a late night the crowd were still rewarded with an exciting 30 laps and the 4 wide salute at the Promoters request. After starting off late and ambulance issue in attendance to a support class accident the time issue was compounded throughout the night.

The race track was in great condition for the 30 lap A and enabled good close racing. V78 Campbell and V7 Solomon lined up on the front row of the A. With a lap two incident which saw Campbell spinning leaving V34 Brenten Farrer with now where to go except hitting Campbell. Damage to Farrer’s car unfortunately put him on the infield for the reminder of the race.

V83 Chris Solomon, V40 Rusty Hickman, SA33 Caruso, V6 Lumbar all applying pressure on each other whilst working their way thru lap traffic. SA16 Jack Gartner and V16 James Wren diced with each other lap after lap swapping positions time and time again with Gartner finally crossing the line in front of Wren.

The Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series is at Heartland Raceway, Moama this Saturday night for RD2 of the JSR King of the Rivers. “So far we have crossed the Murray river at Mildura and this weekend at Echuca.

Both towns are picturesque and special and we love visiting them. Especially when we have the chance to throw in a race meeting” Searle tells us. The River Run is over the first 4 shows which are all based along the Murray & Ovens Rivers and has $2000 to win purse.

Ben Gartner’s SA32 is another youngster who has locked in the series after running selected shows last season. Ben is a cousin to Jack and both teams travel out of Penola SA.

Rusty Hickman’s V40 J&J is making a return to the Series after competing in the Northern Territory during the off season as running several 410 events. The young charger will be keen to kick of his return to 360’s on a high note. Farrer, Lock, Wren, Tancredi, Corey Lincoln, Campbell will be also trying to secure points for the King of the Rivers and the $2000 purse going along with it.

With the usual All Star giveaways, posters, driver autograph signing it will be lots a family fun. On track action starts from 5.30pm. November 18th Heartland Raceway, Moama.

Murcott’s Flag to Flag sweep
Sunday November 5, 2017. All Stars Media
After an 8 month wait the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series teams got to display their new war paint at Timmis Speedway Saturday night with Dave Murcott driving the Victory Lane V88 taking a flag to flag win.

Brenten Farrer’s V34 and Chris Solomon’s V83 were dicing for 2nd and 3rd with Farrer passing Solomon on the last lap to pick up second relegating Solomon into third.

Murcott enjoyed his run in the 360 “you just got to keep it wound up and keep the foot into it – but I am having fun. He then thanked car owners Victory Lane Racegear Renee & Mat Eastham. “I would like to do some more if I can fit them in”.

An eventful A Main took a while to get going with several attempts at the start. Guerin & Murcott lined up on the front row with Caruso & Paul Solomon behind them. Reds were bought on at the start with Paul Solomon & Guerin sitting on the infield as a result.

NT26 Tony Moule, S95 Jarman Dalitz suffered damage also but were able to restart. After a promising start Stacey Gallifords night was also ended abruptly as she retained front end damage and slid into the tire wall in Turn 4. Farrer’s night was not going to plan for the Team with pesky engine issues.
After dropping a heat and lining up in the B he drove the wheels off the car to put it onto the podium. Reds were bought out again with S69 Cody Atkins, S16 Jack Gartner & NS38 Shaun Forrell all suffering damage and ending their nights in a Turn 3 incident.

Taking out the Oval Express Magazine Quick Time Award was V7 Paul Solomon with a 12.510 on the last qualifying lap of the session.

A Main results: 1st V88 Dave Murcott, 2nd V34 Brenten Farrer, 3rd V83 Chris Solomon, 4th SA77 Daniel Evans, 5th V4 Phil Lock, 6th SA33 Mark Caruso, 7th V16 James Wren 8th SA95 Jarman Dalitz, 9th Michael Tancredi , 10th NR26 Tony Moule, 11th SA11 Scott Enderl, 12th SA16 Jack Gartner-DNF, 13th SA69 Cody Atkins -DNF, 14th NS38 Shaun Forrell-DNF, 15th SA32 Ben Gartner – DNF, 16th V33 Michael Holt –DNF, 17th VA15 Corey Lincoln-DNF, 18th NSW56 Stacey Galliford-DNF, 19th SA96 Brendan Guerin-DNF,20th V7 Paul Solomon-DNF

All Stars about to invade Mildura.......
Tuesday October 31, 2017. All Stars Media
“We are about to kick off season No. 11 of the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series at Timmis Speedway, this Sat night – Nov 4th.

I can’t wait to see all our old teams, meet our new teams and be back at Mildura again for our opening night. With a star-studded field of top 360 competitors we open with a fantastic car count and with the running of the Col Beasley 410 Classic on Sunday night effectively having a double header it will be a top weekend of racing” says Mandy Searle Series Promoter.

Back by popular demand is the JSR ‘King of the Rivers’. This will be Round 1 of the 4-round mini-series. The River Run is over the first 4 shows which are all based along the Murray & Ovens Rivers and has $2000 to win purse.

13 teams have contracted to the series with the top 10 locked into the End of Season Awards. Teams committing are V7 Paul Solomon, V29 Michael Tancredi, V4 Phil Lock, V83 Chris Solomon, SA5 Trigga Gates, V34 Brenten Farrer, VA55 Georgia McLeod, SA69 Cody Atkins, V16 James Wren, SA77 Dan Evans, SA95 Jarman Dalitz, NSW 46 Stacey Galliford, SA32 Ben Gartner.

Current Series Champ Chris Solomon is back in the FMG family owned V83 mount. Solomon competed under the Tony Bartlett banner last year and the pair were a very successful match. This season however Bartlett is taking on less rounds after spending the month of August competing in the States. Young Rookie Brayden Cooley will be driving for Bartlett when they are prepped but unfortunately will miss the first one or two shows.

V7 Paul ‘Cyclone’ Solomon has teamed up with car owner Ken Hutchins. Hutchins is renowned for putting different drivers in the family owned race team.

Making his debut with the All Stars is Dave Murcott. Murcott is driving the V88 Victory Lane Racegear for Mat Eastham. The team have contracted to World Series this season but beforehand are slotting a 360 in for this show.

Hard charging SA44 Daniel Evans likes the Mildura track as does V34 Brenten Farrer. SA33 Mark Caruso makes a return after running 410s, with both being past Series Champs their talent is an asset to the field.

Another hard charger making a return after sitting out the majority of last season is veteran Tony Moule in the NT26. Moule’s experience always puts him at the ‘pointy end of the field’ and he will certainly be looking to lock in another A Main win.

V4 Phil Lock, SA5 Trigga Gates, V11 Brad Foster, S96 Brenden Guerin, SA16 Jack Gartner, SA69 Cody Atkins, VA55 young Georgia McLeod- the list goes on, it really is an All Star-studded field of racers to kick of the season.

Make a weekend of it with the emotionally charged 2nd Col Beasley 410 Classic being held the night after turning this effectively into a 2-night show to kick off our season.

On track action starts from .00pm. November 5th Timmis Speedway, Mildura

2017-2018 Season Vortex Racing Product’s Altitude Award
Wednesday October 11, 2017. All Stars Media
Paul & Lynton Jeffrey of Vortex Racing Products has again offered to supply the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series with an Outlaw Top wing for their End of Season Pointfund. The “Vortex Altitude Award” is presented to the driver with the most roll over’s for the All Star season.

“How cool is it to have a company like Vortex back on board for their 10th season of support”, a thrilled Mandy Searle tells us. “With major teams in Australia and multiple WOO & Knoxville Nationals wins in the USA it just proves that Vortex make a fantastic product. Since the company started back in 1995 the growth and popularity they have achieved is amazing. I’m so pleased that they have decided to continue their support again this season.”

It is an unfortunate way to win an award – but on the positive side the series can give something back to a competitor that really deserves it.
Last season Chris Solomon won this award and certainly appreciated the Vortex Outlaw Top wing. ‘It was a bit ironic that Chris won as was also the Series Champion – but this just reinforced to us that Chris didn’t have a particularly easy season and had to work hard for his Series win.”

The name Vortex still leads the way in wing concept, design and manufacturing. Check out their web site www.vortexracingproducts.com.au for full information on their products or email Paul Jeffrey at [email protected]

10 seasons strong
Saturday March 25, 2017. All Stars Media
After celebrating 10 seasons the year was culminated by a formal Awards night and with a capacity crowd it just highlighted how successful the season had been.

Even though it was the 10th season it was also a season of ‘firsts’ for the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series again creating history. It was the first time brothers have stood on the podium together and the first time two sets of brothers raced together in an A Main (Paul & Chris Solomon and Brad & Anthony Foster), also the first time we have had brothers share the honours of winning the Series Championship again proving the strong family influence within the All Stars.

The First time we have run a $10K to win show and the first time we have run a double header weekend competing at Adelaide Motorsport Park and Sunline Speedway, Waikerie both tracks being for the first time. With most of the ‘firsts’ covered below sums up very briefly other achievements over the 11 round (16 week) season.

We all worked hard to recognise this milestone achievement and we believe that we have continued to lift our image and professionalism but also managed to maintain the ‘All Star family fun’ image which is very important to us.

Lovegrove takes a thrilling Final All Stars Round Win
Sunday February 26, 2017. All Stars Media
Last night Former Australian Number Two Michael Lovegrove took the win in the final round of the Mainline Dynolog Dynamometers All Stars Series at Timmis Speedway, Mildura. He led home Daniel Evans who backed up his last round victory at Waikerie. Jarman Dalitz who won the B-Main moved up 12 spots to end his series in fine style finishing 3rd.

Chris Solomon put the SA75 Cool on pole position for the 30 Lap final. He was joined by the NSW36 of Eddie Lumbar who was 6th on points after the heats but was able to work his way through the Pole Shootout to start out of two.

Defending Series Champion Brenten Farrer started the V34 from position 3 and only needed to finish 7th of better to wrap up his second All Stars Series victory. He was joined by Quick Time man Jesse Nicholas in 4th. Lovegrove and Phil Lock shared the 3rd row with former series champion Brad Foster sharing the fourth row with Jack Gartner whilst Brayden Cooley and Evans occupied the 5th Row.

Chris Solomon sped to the early lead with every position counting towards the overall series championship. Solomon was good early on when lapped traffic started to play its part. Lumbar was having a battle with Farrer and Lovegrove for the minor placings before Farrer was able to make his move and get into second setting his sights on Solomon.
Solomon and Farrer then proceeded to battle for the led for 2 laps swapping positions every turn before Farrer was able to pull away. But tragedy struck as the lead duo entered into Turn 3 behind a lapped car with contact being made between them causing damage and a fire to the V34 of Farrer and ending his championship hopes. Solomon was able to restart but was banished to the rear.

Lumbar and McLeod were also innocent victims in the accident with Lumbar heading to the back whilst McLeod ended her strong run on the infield.
After the mess in turn 3 was cleaned up Lovegrove led the field away with 9 laps to run and was never headed taking the win. Following Evans and Dalitz across the line was Gartner, Tancredi, Cooley, Thompson, Galliford, Chris Solomon, Paul Solomon, Newcombe, Lock, Wren, Lumbar, Nicholas and Daniel Ellis rounding out the finishers. Atkins blew a Left Rear Tyre in sight of the white flag. He was joined on the infield by Farrer, McLeod and Foster.

All Stars take it down to the wire....

In what has become a tradition over the past 10 season’s the Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers All Star Series Champion will be decided this Saturday night. It has been an awesome season it will culminate at the final round at Timmis Speedway, Mildura this Saturday.

The Series has had 9 different feature winners this season and with only 110 points separating the top 5 drivers the pressure will be on. The top 5 in points going into the final round are:

1. V34 Brenten Farrer - 4524
2. S75 Chris Solomon - 4498
3. V4 Phil Lock - 4466
4. S44 Daniel Evans - 4456
5. V7 Paul Solomon - 4414

Farrer in the Frijtek #34 Maxim would dearly love to go back to back as Series Champ. Farrer has been running the series for the past 5 seasons and he is well aware to win a series you have to finish consistently because every point counts. Currently sitting in 2nd is SA75 Chris Solomon. Driving the Bartlett Racing Cool Solomon has been fast all season but a run of mishaps in the early stages of the series have made things difficult.

Bartlett has won the series two times in the past with Colin Brooks & Scott Bogucki and would love to collect a third Championship. Chris on the other hand has not won a Championship and after supporting it since the start would also love to be crowned champion in the 10th season. Not surprisingly All Star Legend V4 Phil Lock has been at the pointy end all season even after kicking the season off badly. Battling with the new breed of kids this season Lock has shown speed and consistency.

In his first full time season on the road SA44 Daniel Evans has been improving at every round. Evans picked up his first Series win last weekend at Waikerie and will come into Saturday night with confidence. Rounding out the top 5 is V9 Paul Solomon. Leading the series in the early stages Paul has struggled his way back after slipping back to 10th with engine issues. Paul has been driving exceptionally well this season and his never give up attitude has moved him back to 5th.

Throw into the mix V65 Kane Newcombe, V66 Jesse Nicholas, V53 Andy Thompson, S90 Michael Lovegrove, SA56 Jarman Dalitz, V29 Michael Tancredi, S76 Brayden Cooley just to name a few and again we can expect nothing less than a thrilling 30 laps.

Breaking from the traditional Pit Party Presentation theme this season the series will finish with a Presentation Night on Sunday night at Fosseys Ginporium in The Setts Hotel. Award winners will be announced and celebrations of a fantastic season will mark an end to a very successful 10th season anniversary.

Timmis Speedway – This Saturday February 25th. Action from 7.00pm.
